Lions vs Redblacks Spread Prediction
Lions will cover their -4.5 spread. Even though they have a worst team record-wise, they will meet the -4.5 spread. The Lions offense total points average (20 points) is already more than the Redblacks 13 average points.
The only way this spread won’t be met is if the Redblacks defense. The Redblacks defense has been playing well in their first two games. However, the Lions’ defense hasn’t been playing well. Also, they are a worse defense team.
But with the mismatched defense, the Lions -4.5 spread will be covered.
Lions vs Redblacks Moneyline prediction
This shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone, but we definitely have the Lions winning. Even though the Lions are a 1-2 team, in both losses, they lost by one possession. The Redblacks have not scored twenty points all season.
They have not been playing good football on offense. The Redblacks haven’t thrown a touchdown. The Lions have more passing touchdowns than Redblacks total touchdowns. Their defense does look good (maybe elite) so far in the season, so if they win, it will be by the defense.
There is also the point where there is a touchdown difference between both teams’ total average points per game. The Redblacks defense did play better, but the Lions have played a better all-around game.
That is why we picked The Lions to win 28-17.
Expect the game to be low-scoring in the first half, and then we can expect the Lions to break out and score in the second half. We see this all the time, where teams start slow then warm up, so this game will be close in the first half.
The Lions will not have many rushing yards; they only average 63 yards, so all of the Lions’ offense will probably be passing. Expect M. Reily to have a big game, and he has been playing great so far. Expect a two to three-touchdown performance.
The Redblacks will finally get a passing touchdown, and M.Nichols could even get a second touchdown. He hasn’t been playing well, so we could expect an interception also. His stat line will probably be 2 touchdowns with an interception.
